                        the elegant angler – 18×20 original commission

i have better memories of fishing in streams with stacey, of casting off the rocks with max in cayman and as a bwoy dropping line at morgan’s harbour … sea just takes too long!

but she, she likes to fish and her parents wanted to show her, on the back of the boat, catching mahi mahi … so, here she is, fishing, in a really nice dress and a pair of dior dark-glasses, ’cause i wanted to show the two sides of a woman who is at home with a fish as she is in a really elegant dress.
